Easy Homemade Hummus

February 6, 2019Sew White

Hummus is so quick to make at home and will become something you make time and time again. Enjoy my recipe for Easy Homemade Hummus.

Ever since I learned how to make hummus at home I make a lot! It’s so quick and easy, plus it can be updated to include different herbs and ingredients to make it a little more interesting. However classic style is my favourite. I prefer it a little bit chunkier than super smooth but being made at home means you can create it to your favourite consistency.

Step by step how to make Easy Homemade Hummus

1) To make hummus at home you only need 6 ingredients. Chickpeas, tahini, salt, garlic, olive oil and a lemon. Plus paprika to sprinkle on top if you want.

2) Drain the chickpeas and keep the water they were in aside. Add them to the blender.

3) Add the olive oil, salt, peeled garlic, lemon juice and tahini in to the blender to the chickpeas. I used my froothie blender as it is super powerful and the settings make it easy to control to create the perfect consistency.

4) Whizz up in the blender! Add a little extra of the chickpea water or olive oil if you want a smoother and runnier consistency.

5) Pour it out into a bowl and add a few spare chickpeas for decoration and then sprinkle with paprika and an extra drizzle of oil. Enjoy straight away with hot flatbread.

      I agree. It’s too easy to keep eating though.

    I used to make hummus all the time, but I’ve got really lazy these days and buy it. You’ve inspired me with your beautiful photos of proper homemade hummus – so much nicer.

      Thank you so much Chocolette <3 Fresh is so much nicer but I have to admit I do love the ease and lack of washing up sometimes in buying it ready done.

    I’m ashamed to admit I’ve never made hummus! I didn’t realise it was so simple and I love the idea of making it the consistency you’d prefer.

      I think that is the best bit of making it yourself is making it exactly to your chosen consistency. I prefer semi smooth hummus which is easy to move around. However my family love it so thick you almost break your bread off in it.
